Join CoEd for Fall Fiesta Cincinnati and Atlanta

Join us in Cincinnati and Atlanta for two incredible evenings of live and silent auctions, raffles, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres.

Cheers to our Happy Hour Hosts 
Supporters host wine-raisers to benefit CoEd

Thanks to everyone who made CoEd’s Wine-Raising Happy Hours in Milwaukee and Cincinnati a success! We are so appreciative of our generous event hosts and hostesses, who wanted to do something extra to support CoEd’s mission. With the help of the following people, CoEd collected more than 150 bottles of wine for Fall Fiesta’s wine ring toss game!

In Memoriam 
Remembering Patti Ballard
Patti Ballard shared her compassion with the children of Guatemala.
We fondly remember our dedicated board member, generous supporter, and dear friend Patti Ballard, who passed away on August 6. “Patti was one of my idols,” said CoEd Development Director Holly End. “She was a trail blazer, a master story teller, and a loving, compassionate soul. I will miss her grace and warmth.” We are thankful to have known Patti and send our condolences to her family and friends.
